Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind

Sir Anthony is not at all happy to be asked to escort his grandmother's niece to her home in the country. He remembers Ginny from former years, all skinny and full of annoying opinions. Yet, his grandmother is firm, Sir Anthony must escort Ginny to her country home to check on her roses. Ginny and Sir Anthony start out, but all kinds of annoying things happen. First Ginny's maid becomes increasingly sick, so they stop to care for her at an inn along the way, the inn happens to be the most disgusting one there is between Grandmama's city home and her country home. At this inn, Ginny is first accosted by and then their carriage is stolen by two greasy looking men. It's comical how many bad things happen to Ginny and Sir Anthony on the way to the country, and it doesn't stop there! Ginny and Sir Anthony end up quarantined in the home of one of Grandmama's most annoying neighbor's, whose daughter, Lucinda, only wants scandal and romance. It's a recipe for disaster, but can Ginny and Sir Anthony learn to work together enough to avert the disaster that's coming their way?

This was a fun, cute book! The romance is clean. The plot did tend to move a bit slow for me, but the characters and the zany situations the characters were in made up for the plot. It was clean, which is always a good thing! Overall, I enjoyed this book, and would enjoy reading more books by Heidi Ashworth.

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

Blog Tour - Stu Stories: The Adventures of Dirt Clod and His Sidekick Bird Bones

About the book: Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”

My review: This is a fun book written for middle grade boys. It doesn't seem as though there are all that many written for this group, so I always enjoy seeing new ones. 

I liked the way this one is written. Stu is who the book is about, but the way it's written is through the eyes of his friend, Bird Bones. That makes the things that happen to Stu even more funny because you don't know how the things happened. 

This book reminded me a little bit of "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," because it's a collection of several stories that kind of fit together to make a whole story, but they also stand on their own. I thought the stories…

Favorite Friday - Relative Race

Our family doesn't watch very much TV at all. Most of what we watch airs on BYUTV. We are big Studio C fans at our house. And this show, Relative Race is one of our very favorites. We recently re-watched the whole first season because the second season starts on Sunday and we couldn't wait! 

This show is a reality type show. There are 4 couples who start on one side of the country and race to the other side, meeting new relatives along the way. Last season they took their cell phones away very first thing and they had to use paper maps to get where they needed to go, which was sometimes a problem for all of the contestants. Anyway, each team is given a specific city to go to. They have to make it to the city, then take and send a selfie with a city sign. Once that happens they get a challenge to complete and then they are given their relative's address. Then...they have to spend the night with their relatives, which seems to me like it could be very awkward! But last season…

Changed Through His Grace

About the book: "Have you been changed by grace?" In this insightful book, Brad Wilcox explores this life-altering question in depth. Christians throughout the centuries have used grace to describe God's favor, goodwill, and love. However, grace is more than a description of God's attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. Grace is different from the Atonement. It is not Christ's suffering, death, and Resurrection. Rather, grace is the power that flows from those sacred moments. Grace is not a priesthood ordinance, but essential ordinances invite greater and greater endowments of grace into our lives. Grace is a divine gift, but like any gift, it must be received.

In this book, Brother Wilcox uses real-life stories and personal experiences to demonstrate how we c…
